I’m an illustrator and printmaker based in Leeds, Yorkshire. In the past few years my style has evolved into drawing highly detailed, black and white images of architecture and streetscenes. Common themes tend to be old industry (especially brick mills!), brutalism, faded grandeur, old buildings in general. I’m also interested in capturing shop fronts, especially the slightly dated or less glamorous ones. A lot of my subjects have since been demolished or converted, so I like to think of my work as a kind of archive .
When I’ve focused more on printmaking, especially screenprint, my style involves combining the detailed drawings as layers of colour, building up depth and texture. These have been exhibited regularly both locally and nationally with some having been shortlisted for art prizes.
In the past I’ve completed various other projects including a published historical children’s book, personal and commercial commissions, as well creating a range of greeting cards.
